Modern ID are passionate retailers who started out in 2016 to bring together hand-picked midcentury modern design classics along with eclectic pieces that lift interiors. From seating, to tables, to lighting and paraphernalia, these will make a statement for those keeping an eye out for iconic and eye-catching furnishings.

The collection at Form & Function concentrates on the furniture & lighting of the great British midcentury modernists with a twist such as the humour & whimsy of Ernest Race, the striking forms of Robin Day and the pioneering lighting inventions of George Carwadine. There are also chairs of the European masters Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Alvar Aalto et al. These rare, original statement items will not only look great in a room setting, but will appreciate in value too, so could be sold on should one desire.

Scandinavian by Design is a family run business with a passion for 20th Century Design with over 20 years’ experience. Big names to head to their stand for include Hans J Wegner, Arne Jacobsen and Charles (and Ray) Eames and the lesser known brilliance of Boris Tabacoff, Joe Columbo and Nanna Ditzel. They personally source and hand pick all of the pieces to ensure the utmost quality but also learn all about the history of the items that they sell to impart this wisdom to buyers.

Mid-century modern Danish furniture specialist, Danish Homestore, returns again to the Fair after a very successful first year to display their wares including some increasingly rare designer furniture. Items are individually restored in their showroom should they need it, to be in the best possible condition so customers can be safe in the knowledge that they are buying the best quality possible
